In our case (Confidential Computing platform), the host is an un-trusted
entity. So any interaction with host from the drivers will have to be
protected against the possible attack from the host. For example, if we
are accessing a memory based on index value received from host, we have
to make sure it does not lead to out of bound access or when sharing the
memory with the host, we need to make sure only the required region is
shared with the host and the memory is un-shared after use properly.

Elena can share more details, but it was achieved with static analysis
and fuzzing. Here is a presentation she is sharing about the work at the
Linux Security Summit:
https://static.sched.com/hosted_files/lssna2021/b6/LSS-HardeningLinuxGuestForCCC.pdf

Andi, can talk more about the specific driver changes that came out of this
effort.

In our case the driver is considered "hardened" / "audited" if it can handle
the above scenarios.
